    There has to be some way to do this...

      I have a series of tests that are flash movies running in a browser. We cannot allow the testee to refresh the browser by hitting the f5 button. Is there any way to capture this key and prevent it from being passed to the browser window?

          No.

          What you can do is use a sharedObject to save data based on what the user
          has done thus far. Then, the first thing your movie would do is check the
          data in the sharedObject and determine where to go to start.

          You could also do something server side with a script that takes an IP
          address and location variable as arguments. The script could then update a
          database with the same data. Now your first thing in your movie would be to
          look up the data based on the IP address.
